Tenant sues property owner over slip and fall

By Michael Abella | Jan 3, 2017

EDWARDSVILLE — A tenant claims he was injured when he slipped and fell on the sidewalk at his apartment complex.

Donald Jones filed a complaint on Dec. 9, in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Bouse Properties LLC, alleging the property owner negligently allowed a dangerous condition to exist in the premises.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Dec. 14, 2014, he was a lawful tenant at defendant's apartment complex. While walking on the sidewalk, he stepped upon a substance that caused him to slip and fall.

As a result of the incident, Jones sustained severe injuries resulting in pain and suffering, loss wages and medical expenses.

The plaintiff alleges Bouse Properties failed to maintain the sidewalk and steps in a reasonably safe condition and failed to provide adequate warnings of the existence of the dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensation in an amount greater than $50,000, costs of this suit and all other relief that are just and proper.

He is represented by Micah S. Summers of Walton Telken Foster LLC in Edwardsville.
